Initial Teacher Education at Canons High School – School Direct
Canons High School has a strong tradition of training teachers and has worked in partnership with the Institute of Education for many years. We have well-trained and experienced mentors in all subject areas and our staff have contributed to various aspects of the PGCE courses at the Institute, in addition to offering placements. We are delighted to be working in partnership with other Harrow schools in the Harrow Collegiate Teaching Alliance to train teachers through the School Direct route.
School Direct is a new approach to Initial Teacher Education, which involves schools recruiting trainees directly and working in partnership with Higher Education Institutions to train them. The idea is that the school will then employ them, should there be a suitable vacancy. There are two School Direct routes: salaried (which replaces the GTP) and non-salaried (which operates like the PGCE). The high schools in Harrow are working collaboratively to recruit up to 38 trainees in English, maths, physics and chemistry; who will be trained in partnership with the Institute of Education. Whitmore is the lead school and Canons has committed to try to recruit three trainees in English, maths and either physics or chemistry. We are only offering the non-salaried (PGCE) route. Applications should be made to the Lead School, Whitmore High School, making clear that Canons High School is the preferred Home School.
